Baton Rouge Attorney For Mediation Of Divorce

At the point when a couple has mutually decided that divorce is necessary, both spouses must also decide how to approach the legal process. In some cases, important issues require negotiation to resolve, but both parties are willing and able to focus on reaching solutions rather than expressing anger or trying to gain unfair advantage.

Are You And Your Spouse Both Committed To Resolving Your Case Fairly?

Voluntarily entering divorce mediation may be the best choice if you and your spouse can both be objective and open to compromise. Applying 30 years of experience helping people in Louisiana through divorce, I am a lawyer adept at identifying cases that lend themselves to mediation — and at recognizing danger signs that prevent mediation from working.

Mediation Can Help Minimize Divorce Costs And Emotional Fallout

Essentially, mediation is a nonbinding process facilitated by a qualified, knowledgeable neutral mediator who can explain points of law, identify opportunities for compromise and work to keep the process in motion. Potential benefits and key points to consider include:

  • Mediation can be effective for addressing all types of disputed issues in divorce, including child custody, visitation rights and division of community property.
  • Couples who approach mediation in good faith and ultimately agree on all terms for an uncontested divorce often save many thousands of dollars in legal costs as well as significant time and stress.
  • Outcomes achieved by mutual agreement are generally more likely to be workable and sustainable for the long term than those imposed by a judge in litigation.
